What does the flâneur get up to when he’s not strolling around Bikini Berlin?It’s very simple: he looks for a spacious spot to sit down and eat, relishing every bite as he ponders his next move. How practical that he doesn’t even have to leave Bikini Berlin to do this: the top floor of the concept shopping mall is now home to the Kantini food market with a mix of 13 different eateries.
Barely has he reached the top floor and the flâneur is already faced with a tough decision: Mexican? The burritos, comida corridas, tortas and quesadillas by Chaparro are indeed very tempting. Or what about a culinary trip to Israel? Perhaps the Middle Eastern specialities from Djimalaya would be a better choice? Or even the Indian tapas from Madrido? How about Vietnamese dishes at Royals & Rice, or Korean creations like burgers, bibimbap and popcorn chicken at bibimix? The original Hawaiian poke bowls from SONS OF MANA are no doubt also to the flâneur’s taste. The Berliner Curry Company is an ode to the Berliner’s favourite snack, currywurst, and on the menu at Frai are individually combinable low-carb and Paleo dishes. PastaDeli and TerrAmare entice the flâneur with tramezzini, piadina romagnola or mozzarella in carrozza, proving that there’s a whole lot more to Italian cuisine than just pizza.
But if our flâneur doesn’t happen to find something to satisfy his hunger from all this, he can still check out the regularly changing seasonal offer of the two pop-up stalls, currently health food from RAW‘BAR and the ECHTÖL oil concept.
It’s a well-known fact that the flâneur is an aesthete so it takes more than good food alone to really impress him. He is also looking for a place where he feels at home and that meets his high standards when it comes to stylish interiors.
And the design of the 1800 m² area by Studio Aisslinger does exactly that. Inspired by the sunshine of Palm Springs, the zest for life and flora of southern California and David Hockney’s colour scheme, Kantini represents joie de vivre and pure enjoyment.
Sitting here, it’s easy to forget the time and stay longer than planned. If, like our flâneur, you simply can’t get enough of Kantini, we recommend our Instagram Account. See you next time!
